Close But Not

Well, Hyun-Jin is about as close to a Blue Jays cards as I am apparently going to get in this blaster box, as this is the final pack. Here, we are still pre-Jays contract, but it is a short print base card, so it will stick around my collection for a while. He was for the Jays this year, pretty much what they needed hi to be. Hopefully 2021 can be just as good or even better.

Another interesting mini insert in exotic sports (just another interesting tidbit of history as it were, like discussed yesterday). I swear there were times growing up that arm wrestling was on TV as a sport (just like rodeos use to be on a lot more than the rare thing they are to see, at least that I can find.

A second Moon insert card from this box is pretty nice as well. Mimas is the smallest of Saturn's major moons - again, A&G teaching me stuff I never knew, and that will probably never come in handy, which is why I may just remember it!

Sure - let's just throw a base Maris in here to further the "I didn't get any Jays, but got some really nice Hall of Fame player cards so I can't complain" narrative.

7 Packs, 42 Cards, 154 Points

Come on by tomorrow to see where this one fell in the big scheme of things.


  1. I hear ya. I feel like there was a time when you could turn on ESPN 2 and watch either arm wrestling or lumber jacking. It'd be cool to find Over the Top somewhere online.

    2. My cousin loved that movie for a good while.
